Response to the "sinking" comment: They may have used "sinking" as a figure of speech and not literally sinking.
When Barge is destroyed, Duo comments that "It's sinking," which is rather curious considering there is nothing in outer space to sink into except some large body like a planet, star, or nebula.
Sally Po: Heero you were planning to return to space weren't you? Would you mind taking this along with you? (Referring to Heavyarms)
Zechs: The origin of all disputes is the Earth and none other.
Noin: Wait a second.
Zechs: And that's why I'll set everything right.
Duo: Whoa! look at them go!
Heero: Does this mean you have found out where Trowa is?
Sally Po: No, but I think that the Gundams are essential to our present era and I know for a fact that all the Gundam pilots can be trusted.
Duo: I wanna let OZ and the guys at White Fang know that the God of Death is back and he's come with a bang.
Zechs: You are not needed here, in outer space!
